Re: Where's this 3/25/10

That is where the last(and only one i ever saw in town) crossing guards tower or whatever ya call it was standing when i was really young! I think it is the one at the old jail museum now, not for sure though, it was much taller when it was next to the old train station though.

Re: Darwin candidates

Actually the CF&E tracks have not had many car trains accidents in Warsaw area, can't even recall last one. But these 2 were on the crossings on each end of the street trackage, on the Marion Branch tracks. There are not many gated crossings at this time in Warsaw on the Marion Branch, Center St is ...

Re: Claypool Northeast connector work.

Ok, now the signal replacements are becoming plentiful, none live yet, but they are working way north of Claypool, soon, depending on what happens at Warsaw diamond, the position lights will not be around between south end of leesburg and south end of Claypool. signal base sitting by the intermediat...

Re: Claypool Northeast connector work.

New signal is up on Chicago Dist at connection switch, makes me wonder if the westbound home signal at diamond will remain, or come out. The only 2 signals remaining should be the main and siding for northbounds at diamond on Marion dist. If they are not up too, didnt look down there today, was look...

Re: NS Derailment CP 360

Well oat, I guess the train could, but I would imagine bussing passengers would still be likely due to rounding up a few pilots for move if the timing was similar to what it was today. If timing was more like right after the eastbound Amtraks got by the derailment, maybe they could arrange pilots an...

Re: NS Derailment CP 360

Well, not good, but snapped a couple, were you sitting by the school facing north when that train passed in Claypool?? If so, I was on the other side of the tracks waiting on it, had ATCS monitor running so knew there was another westbound lined up at E sidney, but that was a stack train, possible d...

Re: NS Derailment CP 360

Well, 3 trains showing on NKP between 4 mile and Runnion, probably be dark when it gets to Claypool anyway, might head down just to see how my luck is to see it.

Re: NS Derailment CP 360

Something lined south through St. Joe( ATCS monitor), will they run Chicago Dist if its the Amtrak equipment????? Send em down the CF&E!! thats a better idea!! Soon they could head back up to Chicago line at Goshen thru Claypool to bypass troubles where this happened.

Re: Help with odd address on Fort Wayne ATCS NS server

Nobody has officially yet, I have been working with Scott Givens on the Chicago Line, and now started working on the parts of the Marion District and sharing it with him. Now I have a nice little layout going for the Marion District, trying to focus on it, but keep working both ways on intersecting ...

Re: Amtrak oh how it changes !

I figured Kendallville before i saw the 379 on the bungalow :), unless you did some tricky photoshopping and found a location that looks a lot like Kendallville, I will stick with that answer.
